Eagles Quarterback Carson Wentz Likely Out for Season
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Two sources familiar with the injury told The Associated Press that doctors believe Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz tore his left anterior cruciate ligament in a win over the Rams and will miss the rest of the season and playoffs.
Wentz, a favorite in the NFL MVP race, will have an MRI today to confirm the severity of the injury. Both people spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to release the information. Wentz left the stadium on a cart with a brace on his left leg.
Wentz was hurt late in the third quarter of Philadelphia's 43-35 comeback win at Los Angeles. Backup Nick Foles rallied the Eagles (11-2) to a win that secured the NFC East title and put them in first place in the conference with three games remaining.
